Re: Anna articles and interviews


DUBAI, UAE - Caroline Wozniacki's path to regain No.1 will open with Anna Chakvetadze, after the Russian beat Daniela Hantuchova in the first round.
Watch live tennis from Dubai all week on TennisTV.com!
In a battle between former Top 5 players, Chakvetadze was sharper on the day, completing a 61 63 win over Hantuchova, although the match was far tougher than the scoreline indicates - it lasted an hour and 31 minutes. Chakvetadze has now beaten Hantuchova four times in a row and was happy with her play.
"I guess Daniela just came from Asia and didn't have enough time to adapt to the jet lag and everything," Chakvetadze said. "I was trying my best today. I actually thought I wouldn't have a lot of chances to win, but it's a very big tournament and I really wanted to, so I was trying my best and it was working."
"I'm disappointed about today, but I'm still so happy about last week," said Hantuchova, who defeated Vera Zvonareva en route to the title in Pattaya. "Probably the positive emotions are much more important right now. I just need to rest a few days and try to get my energy back, and then get ready for Doha."
Wozniacki, ranked No.2 in the world and needing to reach the semifinals here to regain No.1, received a first round bye and will open her tournament against Chakvetadze. The Russian, who turns 24 next month, has been as high as No.5 in the world and although she is 0-3 against Wozniacki, she has pushed the Dane to three sets every time, two of them going to 6-4 in the third.
After reaching the Top 5 in 2007 Chakvetadze had a rough few years, but in the second half of 2010 showed glimpses of her former self, particularly during a summer stretch in which she won 10 straight matches on hardcourts (ending up losing to Wozniacki in three sets in the Copenhagen semifinals).
"I'm pretty confident," Chakvetadze said of her form. "I think I'm going in the right direction. At least now I feel I'm playing tennis. A year ago it was something different. I don't want to expect too much, I just want to enjoy practicing, then enjoy the matches and try to win. I don't want to put pressure on myself.
"It's the beginning of a new career for me. I don't think about three years ago. Of course it gave me some experience, but it will also put more pressure on me."

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Anna articles and interviews

Google translation looks very good!!
"Chakvetadze could resume training in two weeks" (Championat.ru)
Www.championat.ru/tennis/news-766326.html
Google translation


Edit: Looking at the source from that article,
"Health and career Chakvetadze is not in danger - says her father" (sport.rian.ru)
http://sport.rian.ru/sport/20110323/356993502.html
Google translation
it says that she is planning to return in Stuttgart, April 18-24.

Hope its true!!!

Re: Anna articles and interviews

Funny how the news travel slowly, even with the internet...
Jessie Balan posted a message on Anna's FB page with the diagnosis 8 days ago. Most of the specialized press picked up on it imediately and wrote articles about it.
Now today, i wanted to see the standings in the Spanish Football League and came across an article on MARCA (spanish sports newspaper), dated as of yesterday, talking about her illness, and that she went back to Moscow to "think about her future" (), but clearly without any real news (and the most outrageous comments from readers).
Now it seems that the Brazilian press have read the Marca article, and are giving the 8-day-old news as breaking, appearing on various important websites, on the same day that it is revealed that the illness might not be that bad and she is a couple of weeks away from training.
When she shows up in Stuttgart they will probably be reporting that it was completely unexpected and a miraculous recovery .

Re: Anna articles and interviews

Two new interviews with Anna this time, first one from @VladasLasitskas, on "Sport-Express":

(you can see how unlucky she's been when the reporter asks Anna if she feels that she's been jinxed )

Second one to "SovietSport" reporter Alexander Nikolaev:

Re: Anna articles and interviews

- Your coach Christian Kordas will arrive in Moscow in the near future?

- I do not see any reason to call it now, so while he was in Argentina. We'll see how my body responds to the first workout, and already from this we draw on.
